SVG Path exported to JavaFX not working

Hi all,

I exported a svg image of some hills out of inkscape and into a JavaFX format. The format for javafx file produced is pre 1.2 so I edited the file to make it 1.2 compliant. The issue is I can;t get the path to display. I am not an expert on paths so I can only assume that something is wrong with the path. The class for the hill is below. Originally I could get the hill to display but I needed to extend the image so I took the svg path, copied it, flipped it 180 and pasted to the "end" of the first. No matter what I do now the hill path will not display.

I think maybe the path is too complex? Or am I doing something wrong?

I display this path by calling

The hill gets place in the scene contents of a stage object. Any help appreciated
